DirectSuggest In Action

Endorsement of DirectSuggest

"I am confident that DirectSuggest will make a positive and measurable impact on idea-sharing in any company who implements it."
Pat Smith, CEO at Designed Learning (The Peter Block Company)

Why Choose DirectSuggest?

Most C-Suite Decision-Makers think an Employee Suggestion Box provides no value, filled with complaints and nothing of substance. Fielding employee suggestions using DirectSuggest is the farthest from that.

Over 100 Organizations Have Implemented DirectSuggest & Less Than 1% Of Suggestions Made Are Complaint Based Or Of No Value!

  • DirectSuggest is the old fashion “suggestion box” reimagined in an easy-to-use and reliable manner by connecting decision-makers directly to knowledgeable employees, making it simple to make suggestions with the assurance they arrive at the right place.
  • DirectSuggest makes it easy for employees to make suggestions improving innovation, efficiency, and more with their hands-on knowledge on any web or mobile device. DirectSuggest also optionally allows for anonymous suggestions.
  • DirectSuggest has a ranking system allowing all employees to collaborate through voting and commenting on suggestions, encouraging employee engagement through gamification, and assisting decision-makers to determine suggestions of the highest value.
  • DirectSuggest allows you to assign the proper decision-maker to a set of filters to ensure that every suggestion is received by the proper person in your company.
  • Each suggestion is linked to the employee who made that suggestion and delivered to the correct key decision-maker, preventing suggestions from being “lost” at an intermediate managerial level in your business, as well as allowing decision-makers to identify employees who could be valuable missing assets.
  • DirectSuggest has both a mobile app and web pages for employees to send suggestions and review suggestions made. DirectSuggest provides a web portal for administrators to set up and maintain categories, locations, employees, and gatekeepers. There are separate web pages for gatekeepers to receive, review, and reply to suggestions. DirectSuggest provides Excel CSV (.csv) file templates for easily importing company information, making no business too large.
  • DirectSuggest provides multiple analytics reports that can be filtered and sorted, along with exported for further analyzing with other tools.
  • DirectSuggest is no more than 50 cents per employee per month and based on number of employees.

How it Works

DirectSuggest Roles:

Administrator – Are an essential part of the DirectSuggest process. The Administrator sets up and maintains the system as well as having several ongoing responsibilities. Included are maintaining Employees, managing Categories, maintaining Locations / Regions, and maintaining and overseeing the Gatekeepers.

Gatekeeper – Act as the evaluators of the suggestions made by your company’s employees. The Gatekeepers should be close enough to the employee making the suggestion to understand its value yet central enough to the organization to make sure those suggestions arrive on the proper desk for action.

Staff – Share front-line ideas and suggestions from hands-on experience on any web or mobile device to improve aspects of your organization. Collaborate with others through voting and commenting on other suggestions made.

DirectSuggest organizes every suggestion by two-dimensions (i.e. category and location/region). Gatekeepers are assigned to each of these identified areas, and DirectSuggest automatically sends related suggestions to the correct person. Setting up DirectSuggest is easy using Excel CSV (.csv) files. Simply export your current employee database, set up a category list, and identify the gatekeepers for the company and DirectSuggest is ready to go.


  1. Import or add Categories.
  2. Import or add Employees. If Locations / Regions are included in the Employee import .CSV file then that table will also be populated.
  3. If Locations / Regions were not defined in the Employee import file in step two, they should be added now. This is not recommended. The preferred method is to include Locations / Regions in the Employee import file.
  4. Verify and update the Gatekeepers for the Categories and Locations / Regions combinations.
  5. DirectSuggest is ready to use and suggestions can be submitted, send announcements to the users with their login information.
